A Deadly Shade of Gold

In keeping with my recent tradition of naming my new tequila cocktails after the 21 novels in the Travis McGee series by American author John D. MacDonald.  I have named this cocktail after the fifth book in the series, A Deadly Shade of Gold. I have always liked the Travis McGee novels, and I believe that most of the titles for these novels make great names for cocktails.

A Deadly Shade of Gold

1 1/2 oz Anejo Tequila
3/4 oz  Southern Comfort
Angostura Bitters
lime slice

First fill a suitable glass with cubed ice
Add the Anejo Tequila and the Southern Comfort
Add a dash or two of Angostura Bitters
Stir gently
Garnish with a lime slice
